Kanye West opened up about his bipolar disorder, confessing that he was actually handcuffed in a particularly harrowing episode.
“If you’re in this state, you’re hyper-paranoid about everything,” West said in an upcoming episode of “My Next Guest needs No Introduction with David Letterman” (via Entertainment Tonight). “Everyone, this is my experience, other people have different experiences — for everyone is an actor,” he said of his mental state in an episode. “Everything is a conspiracy. You feel the government is putting chips in your head. You feel that you are being recorded. You feel all these things.”

West, 41, told the former “Late Show” host about his experience with his psychiatric hospitalization.
“They handcuff you, they drug, they put you on the bed, and they separate you from everyone you know,” West said. “That is something that I am so glad that I experienced myself, so I can start changing from that moment.”

The “Yeezus” rapper said that he wants to change, the mental health and the stigma it following that incident, and noted, “If you’re in that state, you have someone that you trust. It is cruel and primitive to do that.”
“It is a health problem that has a strong stigma on it and people will get the chance to say something about and discrimination, in any form,” he explained. “This is like a sprained brain, such as a sprained ankle. And if someone has a sprained ankle, you’re not going to press him. With us, once our brain is a point of sprains, people are doing everything to make it worse. They do everything that is possible. They have given us to that point, and they do everything to make it worse.”

“If you don’t take medication every day to keep you at a certain state, you have a potential to accelerate and it can get you to a point where you can even end up in the hospital,” he said. “And you start weird, as TMZ would put. When you perform, it expresses your personality more. You can almost more adolescent in your expression. This is my specific experience I have had in the past two years, because I only have the diagnosis for two years now.”
